Footnote 1* [1]Access to the M&S Monthly Saver is available when you switch to us using the Current Account Switch Service and include two active Direct Debits. You can save from as little as £25 up to a maximum of £250 a month. Which means that, if you pay in the maximum monthly contribution of £250 on the same date each month, for 12 months, you could earn gross interest of around £81. Partial withdrawals not permitted. Interest is paid at the end of the 12 month term. If you save less than £250 in any given month, you can carry over any unused allowance to the following months. Monthly Saver interest is calculated daily and credited annually at the end of the 12 month term. Rate is subject to change.

Once your new M&S current account is open you can request to switch your banking to us from your existing provider. Providing your switch includes a minimum of four active Direct Debits, we’ll send you your M&S gift card within one calendar month of completion of the switch as stipulated.

Can I switch my account on a date that suits me?

Yes, you can select and agree a date with your new bank or building society and the process will start 6 working days before that date. Working days are Monday to Friday, excluding bank and public holidays.
